Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Number of ascending runs of length at least two in all permutations of [n]. Example: a(3)=5 because we have (123), (13)2, 3(12), 2(13), (23)1 and 321, where the ascending runs of length at least 2 are shown between parentheses. - Emeric Deutsch and Ira M. Gessel, Sep 07 2004
